It was an ideal fall day in the southern hills of Ohio, perfect weather for an inspiring hike in the woods. My parents and I wanted to enjoy nature before the weather turned wet and blustery the next day. They took me to a park I had not visited yet, knowing I’d love it.
The beautiful park made my heart happy! The grounds had been lovingly developed and maintained by naturalists. A community lodge reflected in a picture perfect pond surrounded by large mature trees. The trails had a colorful blanket of freshly fallen leaves and smelled heavenly! I was already inspired.
As we walked from the parking lot to the park entrance, a commemorative stone honoring a local naturalist caught me eye. The first sentence stopped me in my tracks.
“Charles R. Goslin. A man of uncommon energy, knowledge and remarkable accomplishments…”
Charles had uncommon energy.
Heck, I want to be know for uncommon energy! I was not even aware that uncommon energy was a cool attribute until I read Charles’ commemorative stone. How do I cultivate that?
I currently practice a daily habit of journaling a list of who I want to BE in the form of affirmations: I am a supportive wife. I am a loving mother, daughter, sister and FANCY (aka grandma). I am a loyal friend. I am a life coach to women who want to create their best life. Recently I added attributes I want to cultivate in 2020: tenacious, gritty, genuine, creative, connected and courageous.
Now I MUST add uncommon energy to my list!
What will your commemorative Stone Read?
Your best life is created with intentional habits and clarity of purpose. Goals are not the end game… it is the person YOU become in accomplishing the goals. It is the “commemorative stone” that makes us FEEL fulfilled.
To get started, ask yourself the following questions….
1.What do YOU want to BE known for?
2. What were YOU known for in 2019? Would you change anything?
3. What do YOU want to be known for in 2020? Why? Do you like your reasons?
NOW develop a list of attributes YOU want to cultivate in becoming the person of your dreams. Journal these attributes in the form of affirmations daily. “I am….” Writing them down daily as a reminder of how you want to show up in life is the secret sauce in becoming the person of your dreams!
So… What will YOUR commemorative stone read???? Who do YOU want to become in reaching your goals?
Let me help you
I’d like to offer a caveat: it is not possible to control what other people think of you. The most important thing is what YOU think of yourself. The most amazing thing you can do for your future dream self is to cultivate the attributes you want to be known for. Your future self will be grateful for whom you decide to BECOME today.
